    ZD is one of the best beers in the world. Two cases on their way to me.

    I also love Daisy Cutter, drink a ton in the summers, ZD still much better IMO.

    DC isn't even in the picture with ZD. Wow, dumbfounded by the OP!

    Both great beers, I got to give the edge to Zombie Dust.

    A decent beer for sure, but again, it's not even close to ZD.

    IMO, Daisy Cutter is Chicago's best "house" IPA. That is, you're always going to find it and it's such a solid brew.

    However, it has a tendency to wear down the palate faster than Zombie Dust. Zombie Dust is much more subtle and nuanced. It took me a while to catch the grapefruit, but now that I do, WOW. Such a superb beer.

    I was never a huge of of DC...it's quite a bit overrated, in my opinion.

    ZD, on the other hand, deserves all the praise it gets.

    For the last time, will people stop trying to compare other beers to ZD.... it's like trying to compare any other country to America.... o_O

    Not. Even. Close. Bud. Anything FFF is better than Daisy Cutter, not to mention the almighty Dust.

    Zombie Dust is pretty amazing in that it is a ridiculously hyped beer with zero backlash (that I've seen). It's just really that great. Yeah, the hype is boosted by name/marketing, but the quality keeps the hype from blowing away. I'm a big beer guy to my core, all about the malty behemoths, yet Zombie Dust is one of my favorite beers ever.

    For you Chicago freaks, I will buy a case of ZD and trade you for some DC
